That is a beauty of a 126 - one of the finest I've seen.

Tell me, are the Airconditioner/heat systems as problem prone on the 126 as they are on the 116/107?

hi guys, not been much 116 work lately. the 6.9 (well all of them!) are going strong.
I've done a fair bit on this 126 recently. 
i found a complete set of excellent blue leather seats from an 87' 126 which were electric, and after much effort i managed to change the skins and frames onto my manual ones.  to match, i then had to get the diamond perforated leather for the door cards which i got from GAHH leather.  the only bad bit of the set was the armrest which was the only bit not covered by covers. i got a new noe from GAHH.  when i thought of taking my doors off to fit the leather, i bit the bullet and got every piece of wood trim redone in the 126.  finally i found a guy locally who had a reskinned blue 126 dash and he wanted to swap this with a very nice dark dash i had - excellent. major tom and TJ helped me fit the dash which made me happy. so now the interior is in excellent shape. all i need is a rear parcel shelf as mine is a bit faded.  i just bought some new front speakers to fit in the front. i don't need top end stuff just wanted some 4x6s that i could cut up to fit.  at the rate I'm going, may as well repaint the thing!

Looking pretty schmick there Nathan,

I see you have the lap seat belt folded up neatly back there, how it should be.
